Turns to Augustine of Hippo, arguing that the fundamental grammar of his Trinitarian theology also reflects common pro-Nicene dynamics. Focuses on Augustine’s use of divine simplicity both to articulate the logic of relations in the Triune Godhead and to emphasise that this logic remains beyond human epistemological grasp. When Augustine is read in the pro-Nicene context we see that he does not favour the unity of God over the diversity of persons: in fact, we see that in the late fourth century Latin, Greek, and, Syriac theology share common fundamental Trinitarian dynamics.
